Thought I would post a picture of my leaf lettuce... it has sprouted!! I planted it from seeds, so to watch it go from looking like a pile of dirt to little green leaves is so neat. Can you tell I'm a garden virgin? hehe
MY LEAF LETTUCE SPROUTING
The tomato plants are getting bigger, too! I've got a whole row of them, so I should have lots of tomatoes this summer. I'm going to can some of them, too.
The plums are getting much bigger on my plum tree.
I planted my hydrangeas behind my house, I can't wait for these to get huge!!!! I wouldn't care if they grew taller than my roof! I love hydrangeas so much.
My dad is growing a huge garden on his farm. He started his a few weeks before mine and he's already eating the lettuce and things out of his! He has a green thumb and some sort of dirt that has super powers in it :)
My dad's leaf lettuce and scallion from his garden.
I made me a nice fresh garden salad last night with the lettuce and fresh farm eggs.
Oh I forgot to mention, see that cutting board, that was wood left over form my butcher block counters, so I had a couple of cutting boards made out of it and kept one and gave the other one to a friend.
For my salad, I put leaf lettuce, spinach, eggs, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, scallions, and an oil and vinegar dressing I made myself and topped it off with Nutritional yeast (tastes like cheese). Yes, that is the serving bowl it is in and I ate it all, you can never make a salad too big!
I've been looking for some recycling containers for my kitchen and stumbled upon these today. They don't stand up when they are empty so I'm not really sure how that would work. If anyone has any neat ideas for your recyclables, please let me know or share a link.
